Please note that this listing is for a PDF knitting pattern and not the actual garment.

Inverness is a rustic, squishy and deeply satisfying knit, with a textured cable pattern that repeats at the yoke, the hem and at the top of the sleeves. Modern and flattering, this pullover is slightly cropped, sports slim sleeves, lots of ease in the middle and a longer hem in the back. This is a super stylish, top-down, round yoke sweater that is just so comfortable and versatile. Knit it in a neutral for an everyday knit that you can throw on over a dress or high waisted trousers, or choose a bright color for a wardrobe statement piece.
